Moore charged with harassment following incident at bar

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The boyfriend of the woman who died in an Old Forge shooting this summer was charged over the weekend at a West Utica bar. Utica Police say Joseph Moore is charged with harassment for an incident that happened at "Blu" on Varick Street.

Police say the harassment charge stems from unwanted physical contact Moore had with a woman at the bar early Sunday morning.

Moore was the boyfriend of Catherine Koestner. Officials say Koestner died of a self inflicted gun shot wound August 25th at the Forge Motel in Old Forge.

The Herkimer County District Attorney's office says Moore stopped cooperating with that investigation shortly after the shooting.
